Any Shonda Rhimes fanatic (aka everyone with a beating heart) will know and love Kerry Washington for her role as Olivia Pope. Naturally, the lovely leading lady’s sense of style and sophistication goes way beyond Olivia Pope + Associates so it’s no surprise her home is an elegant oasis. If you filled your closet with The Limited’s Scandal-inspired clothing collection and wept while you held a Scandal finale party (us too), you’ll love all the ways you can bring Olivia’s, err, Kerry’s home decor pieces into your own home.
If you spy with your little eye one sock monkey, you already have a hint of the light-hearted way Kerry’s home is decorated. A basic neutral palette is balanced out with patterned throw pillows, a big area rug and fun accessories like green lamps, vintage skis and cozy throw blankets.
Bring some of the same casual vibes into your own living room with a cozy Chesterfield arm chair from Urban Outfitters ($550), our DIY area rug and a few playful decorative accents like these symmetry objects from West Elm ($30). Oh, and don’t forget the sock monkey from Sock Monkey Company ($18).
Kerry’s kitchen is a stylish blend of gray marble and white cabinets with warm textural accents like wood and a patterned throw rug. A mini breakfast nook is just the right size for a tall table and stool. Just picture taking in that view while you sip your morning tea or coffee.
Add more texture to your kitchen with this pink rug from Urban Outfitters ($60), our DIY wood burned cutting boards, mini wood bowls from Sur la Table ($13) and marble serving dishes from Williams Sonoma ($40+).
The intimate dining room opens up for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining during the warmer months. Even though the floor plan is fairly open, a big area rug establishes a sense of space.
White upholstered dining chairs from Wayfair ($260, set of two) are perfect for a contemporary and chic dining space. Bring in some color with this DIY photo art piece from A Beautiful Mess, bright orange throw pillows from Target ($20) and a silver metallic vase from Z Gallerie ($35+) for fresh flowers.
White bedding and neutral furniture give Kerry’s master bedroom a restful vibe that even the most hard-core gladiator would appreciate. The Chesterfield sofa offers a cozy reading nook for script-reading and cat naps, while the pretty dresser gives extra storage space for Kerry’s (presumably) large wardrobe.
Refresh your bedroom with a ruffled white duvet from Anthropologie ($198+) and a cream throw blanket from Modcloth ($110). If you need more storage in the bedroom, pick up a vintage-looking dresser from Anthropologie ($1400) and add some peaceful color with this DIY abstract art tutorial from Lolly Jane.
